2P!Russia is a fan interpretation of the Hetalia manga/anime character of the "Another Color," or 2p, universe. Being a lesser known Player 2, he is not as developed in the terms of appearance or personality as some of the more popular characters.
His human name is Viktor Braginsky.
Because Russia is not well known in the fandom, he doesn't have a set appearance. Often he is portrayed as having brown hair. His eye color, however, seems to be universally agreed to be crimson. He is also made to have a height of 6'7 by some people, unlike his counterpart's canon height of 5'11. He is also portrayed with dark spots underneath his eyes, mostly from not enough sleep.
His clothes have further variations as his scarf is often seen as grey or red. The condition of the clothing often varies from high quality to being milled at the ends. Generally, he dresses in blacks and reds, often shown with a black variant of his counterpart's overcoat with red trim.
His weapon of choice is a shovel or pistols, though sometimes he's seen with a water pipe like his counterpart.
Russia is often portrayed as the stoic, quiet type. He does not speak often, usually preferring not to speak at all. He is portrayed as serious and mature.
He has a distrust of people and prefers solitude over the company of other people, or so he says.
He can be very bitter, with blunt honesty, and replies with sarcasm to anything he deems stupid. Additionally, he is shown as judgmental and incredibly serious. Unlike his Player 1, he's rather difficult to embarrass, as he's perfected the art of the "poker face".
Russia is often shown to have a taste in manipulation over brute force.
Traits and Extra Information Edit
Russia's traits vary depending on the fans' interpretation of him.
- 2P Russia's past or childhood has not been developed by fans, but some prefer to think that he grew up privileged, unlike his counterpart.
- He is also seen by some fans to have loved Anastasia as a friend and mourned her death deeply, resulting in his way of believing that everything one loves will eventually disappear.
- Much like his counterpart, 2P Russia also played a big role in the Bloody Sunday event (22 January, 1905) according to some fans. He is shown to have been working extremely hard to make his country stronger, but his people didn't seem to appreciate it, thus marching towards the Winter Palace to present a petition to Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. 2P Russia is shown to be shocked at this and told his guards to get rid of the marchers, and that he would help. He is shown to regret this decision and avoids the subject.
- Some people think he sees himself as sensible instead of heartless, which is how the rest of the world sees him.
- He is seen to have some skill in cooking and has a love of herring and mayonnaise especially. He also states that he loves 1P England's cooking on some stories or blogs.
- 2P Russia's heart is stated to be a nuisance either by bringing him unwanted emotions such as sadness, or by falling out all the time. This resulted in him locking it away in a box.
- He is portrayed as an insomniac in general, explaining why he always looks tired and has bags under his eyes.
- He is generally portrayed as lazy and a procrastinator when it comes to work.
- Even though 2P Russia is portrayed as not caring about many things such as his work, other people or his country, it is commonly shown that he can indeed be serious about these things, especially hockey.
- 2p Russia is sometimes also portrayed as bisexual for reasons unknown, but he prefers hiding it because he fears he'll be judged about it.
- His older sister, 2P Ukraine is often seen as an annoyance to him. She is often seen as the responsible older sister when the siblings get in fights or arguments. Like 1p Belarus and 1p Russia, 2p Ukraine is obsessed with 2p Russia.
- His younger sister, 2P Belarus, is also seen as an annoyance to him with her positivity and sensitive emotions. 2P Russia, however, is shown to be capable of becoming extremely protective of her in some cases.
- It should be taken into account that 2P Russia is shown to be incapable of knowing how to treat his sisters and often comes off as rude or insensitive when talking to them, especially with 2P Belarus.
- Even though these siblings don't get along very well, it should be noted that they do in fact care for each other.
- It is also said that he has a mysterious connection with his 1p, that they encountered each once and got drawn to each other's presence. Also, in some MMD videos from Nico Nico Douga in Japan, he is shown to care somewhat for his 1p. In those videos you see 2p Russia being really close to his 1p after each other's encounter. Though people argue it is not 2p Russia, but Soviet Russia.
General 2P traitsEdit
It is common for 2P's to be portrayed as murderous, sociopathic and possibly insane. To most, they are a darker version of the original nations, or 1P's as they are known. However, because the original nations can be portrayed the same way by the fandom, how much hold this has depends on the person making the story.
2p Russia is shown in some fan art with a shovel or water pipe.
There was a sketch released on Himaruya's blog, it was never official and did not become canon as the sketch was not finalized. The sketch was under the 2p! files. One concept shows him somewhat modest and shy, he is holding a shovel and wearing a fuzzy hat. He wears many layers of winter clothing and a longer scarf. Another concept is him wearing a flashy military uniform with lots of medals and a military hat with a brim. For once he's not wearing his scarf and holding a pistol with a long cape down his back. The final concept is him wearing a thick coat and holding bundles of sunflowers. He wears a fuzzy hat and is smiling and cheerful, still wearing his scarf.
